Green-tree raises the roof at Bronte House School

Green-tree has donated Green-tree roof garden substrate to an independent school in West Yorkshire, Brontë House School.


The parents and friends of Brontë House School, which is located in a 70 acre campus in rural Apperley, wanted a Potting Shed that would act as a new classroom and form part of the children’s outside activities. They raised the money for this through a number of fund raising events.


The potting shed has hay bales for the walls for insulating properties and to continue with the environmental theme the parents and friends of the school wanted a green roof.  They approached Green-tech and we were happy to donate the 68 25ltr bags of Green-tree Extensive roof garden substrate that was needed to lay a sedum mat roof straight onto.

Green-tree Extensive Roof Garden Substrate is a lightweight growing media that is manufactured from the award winning Green-tree topsoil.  It has a balanced nutrient content which is perfect for harsh rooftop environments and requires little to no maintenance.


A spokesperson for the Brontë Garden project said,


“A huge thank you to Green-tech Ltd for all your technical support and donation of materials.”


Kate Humes, Marketing Manager commented,


“We’re always happy to help projects like this.  It was great to be on site and witness first-hand the enthusiasm by the volunteers and the children.  The potting shed looks great and the Green-tree Extensive Roof Garden Substrate will ensure the sedum mat roof takes and thrives.  This will be an educational space that will be used by many children for years to come.”
